Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? ●Modern High-End Consumer grade CPU (8 physical/16 logical cores)● 32GB RAM●1TB SSD storage● Mid-Range modern GPU with 32-bit Mul Units (Example: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 or RTX 3060Ti)●100Mbps internet connection ● Modern Medium/Low-End Consumer grade CPU (2 physical/4 logical cores)● 4GB RAM● 256 GB SSD storage● 100Mbps internet connection
Do you have hardware you would like to use but does not meet the stated BetaNet node specs? If so, please provide specs on that hardware below: NO
Why do you want to be a node? Because XX network aims to build a new generation network which can protect the privacy of users and resist the threat of quantum computing in the future. So I want to be one of them
How did you originally hear about the xx network? Twitter
Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
  • Twitter
Are you an active member of those communities? No
What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? I am very interested in the future of XX network against quantum computer
Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones? DOT,NEST
Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)? Chengdu blockchain Innovation Conference, etc
Do you have past experience managing communities or creating content to be distributed across social media? Please enter details for all with which you are comfortable or have experience:
    As part of growing the xx network community, are you willing to create content as part of operating an xx network BetaNet node? Examples would be node setup & on-boarding review vlog post, bi-weekly twitter update, medium review of on-going node operational process, etc. Set up the node and debug it to make it run stably. Update tweets, post for XX network, conduct induction review, etc
    Would you be interested in helping to lead the development of the next xx network community? Yes
    Why do you want to run a node in the xx network
    • To protect the privacy of political speech
    • To protect private personal communication around health and lifestyle issues from mass surveillance and abuse by centralized organizations
    • To promote quantum secure distributed systems
    • To earn xx coins
    • To help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world
    • To contribute to a promising project
    • To undo the centralization of the internet by big tech companies
    • To help build true digital cash to fuel a decentralized economy
    • To reverse the political centralization of legal, police, and military organizations which favor the wealthy and powerful
    What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? In my opinion, although the centralized network is now the mainstream network, its disadvantages are more and more obvious. The centralized network can not guarantee the privacy and security of user data, it is not open and opaque, and its stability is not high. All private data is centralized in the hands of centralized network operators. Decentralized network is the development trend of the future, using distributed nodes to ensure the stability of the network, each participant will be treated fairly, and user privacy data can be effectively protected.
    As best as you can given currently available information, please describe the value proposition of the xx network platform and how it differs from other current blockchain solutions. XX network constructs a new generation network that can fight against quantum computers and protect user privacy in the future. XX network encryption communication software XX message has been able to use XX network realizes the privacy protection of user metadata XX network is the infrastructure of the future decentralized society
    Privacy by Default is a goal of the xx network Platform. In your opinion, why is Privacy by Default critical for the future of the internet? Privacy should be owned and controlled by everyone. This requirement is contradictory to the current structure of centralized network, and can only be realized on decentralized network. Now the main network is still a centralized network, which can't guarantee that the user's privacy data will not be leaked or used. Privacy data is a very important thing for individuals, but it can't be owned and controlled by itself. When these data are used by people with ulterior motives, the impact on individuals is huge. Therefore, it is the trend that decentralized network can protect users' privacy and security in the future, just as an old Chinese saying is popular in the world
    In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Quantum computer attacks by cracking the public key private key encryption system. Unfortunately, the decentralised system uses this encryption system. As a result, the decentralised network can be easily cracked and even destroy most of the existing public chains, which is devastating. Most of the centralized systems do not use this encryption system, so there are many solutions for the centralized system to deal with quantum computers.

    need an explanation on the hardware :neutral_face:
